The 3 Best Video Cloud Storage Programs

Posted by

Video cloud storage is online space for your entire video library to be stored. Ideally, it is an automated system that syncs numerous devices to share and store different video file types. There are a lot of cloud storage systems that work well for images and documents, but what about video files? Here are three popular systems that best handle storing video files.

Canto DAM

Canto’s digital asset management (DAM) is optimized for storing video files that are valuable to companies. Videos with intrinsic business benefit are in need of particular storage, and Canto DAM is the most comprehensive cloud storage for digital assets. The reason storing video files in a DAM system is so important is the security, central storage location and search functionality. DAM uses AWS to secure any video files stored, providing a proven, battle-tested security system.

A DAM is a big part of the video asset management process. All video files in a DAM are stored in a central location, promoting optimal organization and retrieval. This prevents misuse and duplicate copies of the same video file, allowing collaboration among team members. The search functionality of DAM makes it the most efficient cloud storage system for video files, as teams can instantly find necessary videos using specific keywords and metadata.

Google Drive

The first question that comes to mind when considering Google Drive is, ‘Why Drive over other popular systems such as Dropbox’? The answer lies in the simplicity of Drive’s features. First, it offers space to store videos that gives opportunity to share and collaborate within the system. Videos are stored in Google Drive, then shared through a simple permissions tool. Drive’s sharing feature makes it easy to use shared videos in collaboration for projects.

Another basic feature of Google Drive that makes it a valuable tool for video cloud storage is its syncing. Shared video files are automatically synced to all devices connected to the Google account. For example, if a team is finishing a project and a video is uploaded to Drive from a laptop, someone can collaborate and edit the video file from their smartphone or other connected device. They also can see any changes done to the video file immediately.

Microsoft OneDrive

So many vital projects are built using Microsoft Office tools that it only makes sense cloud storage would follow suit. With OneDrive, convenience is the biggest positive. This is best seen when completing a campaign using common Office tools, such as Powerpoint. The video files stored within the OneDrive cloud are automatically available during the construction of Powerpoint presentations.

OneDrive is easy to implement because of Microsoft’s popularity.

Microsoft OneDrive is a tool that lessens IT involvement for companies. This is due to the interface’s similarity to other Windows systems. The majority of people understand Windows extensively, making OneDrive the easiest technological transition of all the video cloud systems available. Businesses can implement OneDrive for video storage and sharing with confidence, knowing the familiarity most team members have with Windows beforehand.

The right system is the system that meets your needs head on. Make sure the software you choose is doing something that no other software can do. Users can only go as far as the limitations of their storage.
